Event description

Description

This exciting event will present many unknown, neglected or forgotten aspects of Dunfermline's history and heritage. What do an ancient Scottish Earldom, a Dunfermline-born but adopted Native American who became a hero in the 1812 Niagara Peninsula War and a Victorian era pioneer photographer all have in common? They are all subjects to be presented and discussed at the Dunfermline Heritage Community Projects Biennial Conference. The presentations will be made by Angus Hay, a former soldier and businessman, about the Earls of Dunfermline, and the role of High Chamberlain of the city; Robert Brightwell, author, who will present the Dunfermline-born Native American and, finally, Dunfermline-born author Alison Bacon (nee Hay) will present the Victorian era photographer. There will also be additional, smaller presentations about aspects of Dunfermline’s heritage and an opportunity to hear about the greatly enlarged archive that the new building is able to accommodate.

A buffet lunch will be provided, and there will be ample time to browse the opening exhibition in the award-winning galleries (or to sit in the beautiful gardens if the weather allows!).
